eastern here on c-span2. >>> presenting thoughts on what a second term for the obama administration would look like. the author contends the president's policies would great ly reduce america's global influence. it's about a hour and ten. [cheers and applause] >> thank you. please, sit down. i'm excited and thrilled to be here with barack obama in this election year, i think we are dealing with one of the most mysterious and odd figures ever to occupy the oval office. a few days ago, i received a phone call, i didn't recognize the area code, and the phone call was actually from kenya, and i answered it, and it was actually george obama, the president's half brother. he's the youngest son of barack obama, senior. he said, i'm calling because my 2-year-old son is in the hospital with a serious chest condition, and i wondered if you could help me. i said, are you at the hospital, george? yes. hand the phone to the nurse. he did. the nurse confirmed that george's son is sick with a chest infection. i sold george i would send him a thousand dollars by western union. i said, george, suspect the
polled believe that president obama deserves to be reelected. 54% say he does not. when asked if they're satisfied with president obama's handling of the economy, one out of every two people said, no, not satisfied, and with some 52% saying that they feel like the country is in worse overall condition than it was four years ago, these polls help define the challenge for the president and his team here at the democratic national convention. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. put these in perspective for us. >> well, look, here's the deal. the president knew all along what you and i have talked about, what your viewers have talked about is this, there are two questions in every re-election effort, and the first question is, does this guy, is this guy the guy you want to keep in the job? and then the second question is, is the other guy worth the risk? is he worthy of this challenge? and the president at this moment with just 63 days left until the election headed to charlotte to try to still rally his base has to admit t
. >>> thanks very much. happening now, president obama on this day he has some time to raise money in person, but only time for a phone call with israel's leader. more criticism coming in. we're also looking at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the presid
." wolf. >>> martin, thanks very much. happening now, brand new poll results show president obama's approval rating passing a very important milestone. also, on this an ser vary of 9/11, we'll hear the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the presiden
worth noting. one is missile defense. when the obama administration came into office, they did not cut funding for missile defense. they kept it at about the same level, about $10 billion a year. but they shifted resources to focus much more on other things. these are systems like patriots, it is good for helping protect our forces overseas were -- now, national missile defense systems are really concerned with protecting the united states in particular. the obama administration changed our plans for european missile defense to leverage the existing missile defense system and put that system sure first in romania and poland later on. they also curtailed the ground-based midcourse. they stopped it at 30. i think the wrong administration would actually probably go back and change the balance again, much more in favor of national missile defense systems and we have actually seen in congress, republicans have been pushing the idea of deploying some of these ground-based and interceptors on the united states disclosed. another area of specific differences in shipbuilding. it is an imperfect
and a liberal "the washington post" columnist go head to head over hate toward president obama. charles will be zero if the republic party is missing anything it's sort of this war on women. >> war on women? sandra fluke? she is 30 for god's sake. just shut up for a second, okay? >> dennis miller man oman over the president. >> go factor, go factor. >> caution, you where to enter the no spin zone from massachusetts. the factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly, reporting tonight from washington, more americans murdered by militant muslims. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. right off the bat offended the far left. they don't want the facts reported about the islam i islamic jihad the followers of allah who kill in the name of their religion. that's tough. my job is to till the truth. in libya, 52-year-old christopher stevens, the american ambassador to that country was murdered last night along with three other american citizens. fox news has obtained information that those killings were apparently planned. not a spontaneous demonstration.
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
officials are speaking at the ceremony at new york's ground zero. president obama and the first lady attended a ceremony at the passenger today. the president laying a wreath before making comments. >> the true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division, it will be a safer world, a stronger nation, and a people more united than ever before. god bless the memories of those we lost. jon: you won't have to watch any attack ads today, both the president and republican presidential nominee governor mitt romney pulled all negative ads in honor of 9/11. today governor romney issued this statement. eleven years ago evil descended upon our country taking thousands of lives in an unspeakable act against innocence. america will never forget those who perished. america will never stop caring for the loved ones they left behind and america will remain ever vigilant against those who would do us harm. eric shawn covered the attacks that morning, with us here at fox, he's live at ground zero now. eric, what is going on? >> jon, you know it has been eleven years but it seems as if no
a statement in which he issued an apology to u.s. president barack obama and the american people for the attack on the embassy today, saying this was unacceptable and ordered yemeni security forces to launch an investigation and prosecute anybody they found involved in this to the full extent of the law. this was quite worrying today. for one reason, the u.s. embassy compound in sanaa is one of the most protected sites. not just in the city of s aanaa, the capital of yemen, but practically in all of the country of yemen. i've been to yemen several times, been to sanaa several times. i've been to the u.s. embassy. this site is not easily accessible to anybody. i spoke to activists in sanaa who said they were watching what was going on from rooftops of nearby buildings. they say they were absolutely shocked that this crowd, marching toward the embassy, was able to get as close as they did to the main gate and then that they were actually able to breach the compound. they were flabbergasted by this. they can't understand how yemen security could allow this to happen. in the ensuing
and president obama. we want to get your thoughts on that this morning. who do you trust on foreign policy in campaign 2012. the numbers are on your screen. you can get in touch with us via social media -- host: we will take a look at an article by james kitfield in "the national journal." he will be our guest later in the airport. the election is a test of competing world views. this is from the august 27 edition. now, regarding governor running romney -- we will look at some points of conflict regarding different areas around the globe but let's go to the phones. our first call regarding campaign 2012 -- who do you trust on foreign policy? our first call comes from south carolina, good morning. caller: thanks for taking my call. i trust president obama. mitt romney wants to go to war again with by ren and we don't need another war. -- with iran and we don't need another war. obama has done everything he can as president. we had a national tragedy and he wants to politicize it. i don't trust mitt romney. he wants to go to war again. i love with the president is doing. people wanted freedo
.s. and israel. >> reporter: that squabble led to a one hour phone call between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu late last night east coast time early morning in israel after israeli officials complained that he was being snubbed by the white house. on sunday and then again wednesday, prime minister net railed against the u.s. for not taking a tougher stance on iran's nuclear program. >> if iran knows that there's no red line, if iran knows that there's no deadline, what will it do exactly what it's doing. it is continuing without any interference. >> reporter: then came reports in the israeli press that the white house turned down a meeting with when president obama and the prime minister attend the u.n. general assembly in new york later this month. they're simply not in the city at the same time the white house explained. this is the first time that benjamin netanyahu has come to the united states as prime minister and not met with president obama. the two have had their tense moments before in an oval office meeting last year, benjamin netanyahu appeared to lectur
to conflict with the position of president obama, at least not publicly and that the u.s. and israeli governments do share a common goal. and i should say this too. the israeli prime minister, before embarking to the united states, made remarks briefly yesterday on the holiest day, right before the holiest day in the jewish calendar, yom kippur. he said this speaking about mahmoud ahmadinejad speaking at the united nations on that very same day. and i quote. on this day when we pray to be inscribed to the book of life a platform was given to a dictatorial regime who tries at every step to sentence us to death. it is position of the israeli prime minister if not stopped iran will developed enriched-uranium that could be used to make a bomb as early as spring of 2013. we expect him to elaborate on that in just the next few moments. megyn. megyn: david lee miller, thank you so. there was, as we've always heard from iran some bellicose language from its leader in the united nations. israel will have the chance to respond after mr. netanyahu speaks, we will be joined live right here for re
support. we want to deserve a victory. here is the problem. president obama and too many politicians like him in washington, they are more worried about their next election than they are worried about the next generation. [applause] we need leadership. you have mark here. that man is a great leader. send him back to help us fix the mess in washington. we have entrepreneurs in this country that built this country. by the way, john phillips, we are here at your business. you know what? you built this business. [applause] the government does not get the credit for that. you know, the president gave a big speech last night. well, just hear me out. look. president obama is not a bad guy. no. president obama is not a bad guy. he is good at giving great speeches. he is just really bad at creating jobs. [applause] here is the problem. when you think that the road to success and prosperity is more borrowing, more spending, more taxing, more regulating, a government-centered society with a government-run economy, these are the kinds of results that we get. if we want the next four years to be any d
criticism of president obama's international policies. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> dramatic developments unfolding. let's begin with some important new developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we
blunt phone call from president obama to morsi calling for bold action to protect u.s. personnel on the ground. this included televised appearances by him for muslims to protect the guests in their country and a statement released by the muslim brotherhood which they urged muslims to form a human chain around any embassy that might come under attack in their respective countries. my colleagues at pentagon, justin and jennifer griffin confirmed a marine f.a.s.t. team is on the ground in the yemeni capital sanaa as a precautionary measure. once again a loud plume of smoke is reported to be emanating from fires inside our embassy in tunisia and gunshots have been reported both there and as there near the u.s. embassy in sudan. busy day for officials in the state department and around the world. jon. jon: looks like a bad situation. we'll keep an eye on it. james rosen at the state department. jenna: let's show you a little bit what james has mentioned. we'll show you a few key areas today. that is what yemen looks like. that is where according to our reports a marine unit is being s

, barack obama saying that he doesn't really consider egypt an ally or an enemy at this point, that it really is time will tell, this is a work in progress. that really is kind of a stunning change of position from the white house perspective. >> reporter: i think that that statement took many people by surprise and shocked them a great deal. part of the anti-u.s. sentiment, and there is an anti-u.s. sentiment in the clashes today and in the protests on tuesday and in the various countries where the protests are taking plaes, the u.s. has been -- egypt has been a major ally for the u.s. to the extent that five different u.s. administrations supported our dictator, mubarak. i think the white house realized, because over the past few minutes i've been reading statements, the white house realized what a shocking statement that was and it looks like they're trying to back pedal from this idea that egypt has been demoted as an ally. i think everybody right now feels how sensitive the situation is and understands this political jockeying for power and again to reiterate, it's -- the

president obama has snubbed israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu by refusing a meeting with netanyahu -- when netanyahu visits washington next week. the reported rift is said to center around u.s.-israeli tensions over iran, with netanyahu continuing to push for a military attack. on tuesday, he escalated his rhetoric say no one in the world can tell israel not to attack iran. >> the world says, "wait, there's still time." i say, "wait for what?" "wait until when?" those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before iran do not have a moral right to place a red light before israel. if iran knows there is no deadline, what will it do a question of exactly what it is doing. it is continuing without any interference toward obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs. >> many have taken that to know who's comments as his most forceful rebuke -- have taken the prime minister's comments as the most forceful rebuke. united nations special envoy lakhdar brahimi is due to arrive in syria in the coming days for talks with both president bashar al-assad
. we voted 32 times to repeal obamacare. obama does care more than i can say for some. we had time for voting to repeal obamacare 32 times, but didn't have any time to offer serious fixes to the economy. and i just want to mention that president obama, to his credit, has done, i think great and excellent work in offering solutions. they simply have been ignored. it's really kind of sad when you think about the fact that the president has offered real serious and important solutions to the problems of the nation and yet they really have not been seriously addressed. for example, the president called us all here and talked about the american jobs act. this is a great piece of legislation. but you know, mr. speaker, we never even had a vote on it. we never even had an opportunity to say who wants the american jobs act. it was simply something that the republican majority in the house wouldn't even address. the fact is, there were great ideas in this bill. and i want to talk about those ideas, because i think they would really do a lot of good. it includes a national infrastructure, a
. under the leadership of president obama and the international community, the united nations has put them under some of the strongest sanctions today. oil exports have been correct. the iranian economy has been hit hard. it does have an effect on the economy. we must face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear nucleare on iran's weapons program.

. he urged speaker boehner to abandon the grand bargain talks with president obama.
